Software Quality as it Relates to Data

Special Guest!

Leveraging advanced technology and quality software in a modern data architecture requires quality planning around Master Data Management and Security practices. Together these provide the foundational framework for governance at scale and allow for high quality software development and deployment practices that facilitate digital transformation in the cloud. We will discuss how AWS services help large public and private enterprises manage data flowing in and out of diverse lines of business at any scale. We will talk about building a robust, resilient, and scalable data lake and data catalog that integrate seamlessly with services inside and outside of AWS.
